Replica M3 Bumper fitment

Hi everyone, I own a 02 325ci (titanium silver color), I have been looking for m3 replica bumpers recently and I found an amazing deal in a scrapyard. I found a m3 bumper already painted in my car's color and in good condition. I can get it for a very good price. The thing is it is currently installed on a 03 sedan (so facelift). Will it fit my pre-facelift coupe without major modifications? I am guessing it is a replica bumper and from what I read on the forums they are pretty much the same size for coupe or sedan. The only thing I am concerned about is that on sponsors site's they ask if you have a coupe or sedan before you buy the bumper. This would save me a lot of time and money since I can just buy it here in CAD and already painted. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Judging from this thread I'd say yes it will fit. I may be completely wrong so I'd research alittle more.

Thanks for the reply man. Yeah I was more concerned about the coupe/sedan fitment issue...

My bad, check this thread, talks about the issue near the bottom. Sounds like you can with just some modification. Hope it gets worked out!

Bump, found a lot of threads for coupe to sedan but not the opposite. This bumper could save me some money but I don't want to be stuck doing major modifications in order to have it fit and still look like crap
